Those look like Japanese novels (not graphic, just text).

For the most part the illustrations in them tend to be sparce, and the covers are typically illustrated by really good artists.

Valeria File and Tamaiken were novels that Shirow did illustrations for. Similar to Jashin Hunter, there were several illustrative images drawn and inserted throughout the books by Shirow. But he had no control over the story itself.

More detail here:

The Cthulhu he did do some images, but I remember there was more detail in one of the Intron Depot artbooks about that.

These are most likely light novels. This is where Haruhi and Shana first started out from.

Every once in awhile that seller rolls out a bunch of those books on eBay and they never seem to get sold.

Thanks for the replies everyone :)

I'd buy some of them but they are quite pricey for just a cover image, or a few pics....I'm a big Shirow fan but not that big.
